What are jobs?
Countries can make massive cost savings and create millions of jobs by signing up to global climate change initiatives, a new report backed by Tony Blair will argue.
The report, titled Cutting the Cost, will focus on the economic advantages of a global response to rising temperatures caused by the growth in greenhouse gas emissions.
Analysis in the report shows that an international global deal over climate change could create as many as 10 million new jobs in green energy by 2020.
In a foreword to the report, Mr Blair attempts to head off criticism of the proposals. ''The overall message is clear: even ignoring the costs of climate change itself, the world benefits economically from action to cut emissions.''
Grade A Economic Fuckwittery Creating costs doesn't promote economic revival.
